But you are young.....

though most people think this is a good thing...I do not

for the following reasons:

A) my body does not feel this way...we are on limited time before I may need another surgery fro my Crohn's disease and recovery from that, which could take 6 months to a year or more.

B) it does not make infertility easier to think about how much time I have to try to get pregnant...just makes me sad to think I could take that long to get our take home baby

C) Youth as most of you know has NOT A SINGLE THING to do with fertility....unfortunately, or I would be likely pregnant with my second in a few months!

Unfortunately I have learned people don't know what to say when it comes to pregnancy loss and infertility. Some people think I am going to far getting fertility treatments at only 24. the thing is I needed it to get pregnant, and I am not sure what I need to stay pregnant yet.

I said I would bring in the humour...not sure when that is going to happen!


  1. Shannon, I'm so happy you've started a blog! I started my online journal on TTC while I was still trying to conceive and I journaled everything!!! And now I have my blog where that journal left off. It's amazing to look back to where I was 6 years ago and see how far I've come. One day, you will too. You'll be so happy you've had the entire journey documented. Not to mention, it's also a great way to get your innermost feelings out. My journal was a huge source of comfort for me.

    I hope you don't mind if I continue to follow you!

  2. Hi Shannon, I'm glad you started a blog so we can follow your TTC efforts and cheer you on. You're right, just because you're young does not mean you can get pregnant easily.

  3. from LFCA. Welcome to blogging, I find it incredibly cathartic and I hope you do too. I'm technically 'young' too (turn 27 in May). We started when I was about 24.

    Young doesn't do jack.

    I'm sorry about your recent miscarriage, that would have been devastating. I had one around 19 Jan when our 7.1w ultrasound showed our baby alive but I started bleeding bad. I was on bedrest for the week and the follow up u/s was bad news all around. I'm sorry that this happened to us.

    Sending you some hugs,
